Our missions administrator, Gordon, is also very active in the Gideon Ministry. On Tuesday, September 3rd the kids and I, along with Member, were able to join him on a Bible Placement to a few of the schools in some of the surrounding villages. We had a great time.

A few days later I needed to go run errands and the car began to overheat. I was next to a garage and pulled in there. The attendant helped me to cool the car down and fill the water back up again. I managed to get to another shop and noticed the temperature rising again. It was closer for me to stop by the mall then go home so that is where I went. I let the car cool down and then added over 2 liters of water and made it home. Nathan came by that evening and discovered the water flange was cracked (remember at the beginning of the month Mark and William replaced it) So, for the third time since April we put a new water flange one. Thankfully Mark bought a spare earlier in September - guess I need to go replace the spare as this seems to be becoming a common problem.
The next day I needed to finish my errands ... everything was working fine. Then, all of the sudden the temperature gauge rises from normal to well over half in seconds. I manage to get to the garage that was up the street and call Nathan. The water tank was boiling over. We let it cool down and replaced the water. Nathan found a way to bypass something and keep the fan running and he drove it home. He then went to buy a new water bottle as he said this one cracked. So, it has been three days now and all seems fine with the car. For now!
